American Gyros – Mystery Meat Demystified

If you’re from Greece, you’re in all probability pretty confused correct now, in addition to wondering why I’m calling this gyros. There, pork in addition to chicken are used, inwards non-ground form, in addition to equally the meat turns slow over a fire, the cooked, caramelized surface is shaved off into sparse slices. 

It’s amazing stuff, but believe it or not, I prefer this Americanized “mystery meat” approach, which uses solid soil lamb and/or beef. The spices are similar, but the texture is totally different, in addition to for me, to a greater extent than interesting. I tin lavatory consume fresh, identifiable meat anytime, in addition to then when I’m inwards the mood for gyros, I desire the materials you lot tin lavatory exclusively function from for sure street vendors. Of course, since the meat is ground, you’re taking their discussion for which specific animals made the ultimate sacrifice, which is why this materials became affectionately known equally “mystery meat.”

This agency is perfect for making ahead of time. Once it’s chilled, in addition to sliced, all you lot postulate to practise is brownish it inwards a pan, in addition to abide by or in addition to then flatbread to scroll it upwards in. Preferably, that would hold upwards homemade Lebanese mount bread, which I volition campaign to demo you lot inwards the close future. In the meantime, your favorite pita volition do, exactly equally long equally you lot don’t forget to make or in addition to then tzatziki. I actually promise you lot hand this a assay soon. Enjoy!
